Holiday Giving Opportunities

Holiday Toy Drive

This holiday season, you can sponsor a child to attend SOME's holiday party. This is a fun and festive event with holiday arts and crafts, cookies and hot chocolate, and an appearance from Santa! Each child will receive a shoebox gift filled with necessary winter and hygiene items, and their parent/guardian will receive a gift card to ensure that they can make holiday wishes come true. 


Thank you for making the holidays even brighter!

Holiday Shoebox Gift Drive

Your gift boxes will be given out over the holidays to all who come to SOME for meals and services and to residents of SOME's affordable housing.
